The Health Care MBA Difference

The Health Care UST MBA program is unique among MBA programs in that we tailor core business courses specifically to the business of health care. MBA programs with a health care concentration, on the other hand, are typically non-integrated programs where core business courses are comprised of students from across industries and areas of interest, and health care courses are taken as electives.

Core business courses in the Health Care UST MBA examine business principles, relevant examples and trends from across industries, while class dialogue focuses on how these concepts apply, or must be adapted to, the health care sector.
